This joint EU-UNESCO conference will enhance the capacity of EU States and representatives from the private art market sector to protect cultural property within and beyond its borders.
This conference is organized in the framework of “Engaging the European art market in the fight against the illicit trafficking of cultural property”. The project particularly aims at reinforcing due diligence conducted in the European art trade while sensitizing relevant stakeholders to the different implications of illicit trafficking of cultural property – from the consequences regarding the protection of cultural heritage to terrorism financing and money laundering.
